On Tuesday the 19th of June we had a successful day at Burry Port Primary school launching VocalEyes with staff and pupils. The day started with assembly when the whole school got a chance to see the platform in action. Following this the School Council met to learn how to use the platform.
The School Council has representatives from Years 2-6, (aged 6-11) and they began by learning how to register on VocalEyes. This took a little time but as soon as everyone was signed in the fun began!Read more..
This is even more serious amongst the under-25s where fewer that half voted compared to over 75% of those over 65 (ERSC, 2014). We think attention to participatory democracy in schools could put us on a different track and bring democracy alive in Wales.

There was also a request for more vegan snack and sweet options and we now have an additional vegan snack bar being sold across campus and Vegan Magnum Ice creams are also available.
We see this as a brilliant and positive start top improving our catering offerings and want to thank everyone for your comments and suggestions to make this happen.
This option has been requested often and we are really glad to be bringing this to you. We are constantly improving the service at the college and through the help of VocalEyes and talking to you all we are going far. Let's keep this up.
Student Union President
Thank you everyone who participated in the vote it's fantastic to see such high levels of engagement, with over 1000 votes cast.
We are excited to announce that the item with the most votes winning over 50% of all votes cast was for subsidised food/ meal deals.
Over the next few weeks the college management team will be working alongside the catering manager to implement these changes.
Once more just a massive thank you for your participation - we're so excited to have YOU the student a part of making decisions that effect the student body.
